Description

Roosevelt Dam Trip

Quite a number of Apache

Indians live around Miami, Arizona.

The Apaches are very

nomadic, consequently their

homes are among the very

most primitive ^ones you find in

Indian-land.

I believe this type is called

wick-ie-up.

Goodness only knows how

many "reds" are in the

wickiup, but there were two

squaws, at least who insisted

that we pay them $2.00 for

the privilege of swapping

them. I offered 50 cts which I

considered ample but they

said no. Finally we decided

to be satisfied with a view of

their houses, and they howled because

we refused to pay 1.50 therefore.

After moving away we looked

back and one of them at stood outside

in a bright blue dress which she had

put on while dickering behind the

enclosure. Strange folk, these

Apache women make fine baskets.
